A magical image, David. Interesting observation on the Kx, too.
Best wishes,

Andrew

When I saw the thumbnail, I wondered if it was the K3 !!!
Yes, I'm convinced that the Kx and 55-300 are a pretty unbeatable combination !!!

It's a stunning atmospheric shot !

Thanks for the comment Andrew, in terms of the K-x, for the money it cost versus the quality of its output, I don't think they have made a better camera in the digital age. It won't compete for outright IQ with say a K-5 or a K-3, but it is not a million miles off. I think K-x's in good nick can be picked up for around £150 nowadays - what a bargain!

A tremendous shot David, it has real beauty, benefited by the mist, a bonus of rising so early.
Kind regards Maria
